    Thanks I am cleaning it up right now and was hoping to get some insight on what some of these items are.

    The one piece looks like it could have been a hoe at one time because of the hole where a handle might go. Another piece looks like it might be a blade for cutting rice. Does the piece shaped like a J have a sharpened edge on one side?

    The items with the engravings (Pictures 1, 3, & 4) on them look like part of a sideplate off an old rifle. In the first pic what is stamped on the back, I think I can see WIL?

    There are several Wilson's that made flintlocks, somebody who is more knowledgable about them will help fill in the blanks. That said it appears you have parts of a Serpent or Dragon sideplate to a Wilson (which Wilson I don't know) flintlock.

    Yes, the first item is certainly the sideplate from a rifle. Should be made of brass, and no need to do electrolysis on brass items (it is Not the preferred cleaning method). Not sure why it turned out silver colored, unless you had something else in there with it, or reversed the positive and negative on your electrolysis tank. That's a great find, and you may find more pieces of it later on in the same field.
